2. Changes in the body shape
It is interesting to learn that the lack of calcium doesn’t only affect our bones by decreasing their density and resistance. After all, our bones are the structure that holds our whole body and protects our vital parts such as our brain, lungs and heart. If our bones are affected by a calcium deficiency, we are like a house with weak foundations or columns; we will start to bend and lose our posture.
A low calcium symptom that is derived from low bone density is, believe it or not, a difficulty to stand straight. Our bones cannot support the weight of our own body and we assume a stooped posture or bend forwards. This can make us look shorter, but in some cases, we actually do lose a bit of our height. If our bone density decreases, our own weight can crush us and make us shorter.
